TMSG: TikTok Users Surprise Regular Pizza Delivery Man With $12K Tip
89-year-old Derlin Newey delivers pizza for Papa John's in Utah.
Newey became a favorite delivery man for couple Carlos Valdez and his wife. The couple loved him so much that they started recording his deliveries and posting them to their 70K TikTok viewers on the account @vendingheads. Turns out, their TikTok viewers loved Newey as much as the couple did. Newey would always use his key opening line "Hello, are you looking for some pizza?"
Valdez thought it was crazy that a man pushing 90-years-old was working, especially running around delivering pizzas, so the couple asked their followers on TikTok to donate some money to help Newey. They were able to raise $12,000 with the help of the TikTok community.
This week, Valdez and his wife visited Newey at his home and gave him the cash to which Newey responded, "How do I ever say thank you? I don't know what to say."
